These Classic Hip Hop Album Covers Got The Marvel Treatment

Marvel just keeps giving us reasons to love them! The comic book giants are paying homage to iconic hip-hop albums that were released over the past 30 years, both old and new. They only released 11 album covers so far, but over 50 albums will be recreated by October, which we’re super stoked about!

“For years, Marvel Comics and Hip-Hop culture have been engaged in an ongoing dialog. Beginning this October, we will shine a spotlight on the seamless relationship between those two unique forces,” Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso said at a press release.

In 2009, rapper Eminem teamed up The Punisher in a comic. In 2014, hip-hop duo Run The Jewels’ album cover was used as a theme for Howard the Duck and Deadpool comics. Marvel just can’t hide its love for hip-hop — their tribute features artists like Lauryn Hill, 50 Cent, The Notorious B.I.G., Wu-Tang Clang, A$AP Rocky, and many more. They are all too legit, check them out below!

(Disclaimer: There’s a reason why all of comics end in #1, because Marvel is in the middle of a battle called Secret Wars which will end in a reboot of the entire universe.)
